Duncan Taylor 13 year old Dimensions Cask Strength 2005 (distilled at Jura), 48.9%

Price: $85 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Jura has been partial to releasing 13 year old limited editions over the years, so this independent bottling attempts to compete, with grassy notes, orchard fruit, aniseed, peppercorn, lemon pith, and hints of jellied fruits. There is dried banana, mandarin, orange Jell-O, Italian meringue, and a little pepper to taste, with bitter orange on the finish. Perfectly serviceable, but the flavors seem a little stuck on repeat.
